Met our needs.
Plenty of room.
The house was as listed, bed linens need to be updated. Our stay would have been better if we were able to relax by the pool but we were bombarded by flies from the overflowing garbage bins that were still there when we left even after we called twice. The house was clean and comfortable otherwise
As Described. Perfect Location!!!
To be honest this would be a 5 Star Review except for a couple things that really werent that big a deal but more of a niusance. The kitchen had tiny ants that we had to buy spray and chemicals to get rid of but once we did they were pretty much gone. My other issue was with the tiny tv’s in all the rooms except the main master and living room. It turned out in the evenings we had some down time and watching tv was a chore just trying to squint and some in our group even complained about a headache from it. Other than these 2 minor issues everyone in our group of 12 loved the big spacious house really close to Disney and 30 minutes from other attractions. Thank you to HomeAway and the owners of this property for giving us an affordable option. We will definitely be using and recommending you in the future.
Hi Marisol, thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback about your experience at our home. We apologize for the ant issue you encountered. We regularly have an exterminator come into our home to maintain any rodent or pest issues. The ant issue must have come up just before your arrival. We will make our property management team aware of this issue and have our exterminator come by to check on this. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your stay aside from the small TVs. We would love to have you stay in our home again, thank you for choosing Sweet Home Vacation.
Some good things, some bad.
I'll start with a small back history on myself. I do own a dog but did not vacation with it. I also was a housekeeper for two years for a family that owned pets inside their home. And it was for a large house quite bigger than this one.
Moving onto my review itself. The high points. Great location. Big house. Nice rooms. Adequate size for our party of 5 adults a nd 4 children (ages 3-8) felt like we all had our own space without bugging each other. The address sent by the rental company w as apparently wrong. According to the narky receptionist anyway. Hot water heaters need updated to accommodate that size of a home. Beds were very uncomfortable and felt like sleeping on a rock. Also, the website description says 4 kind en-suites. There were only 3 king and 1 queen. The hot tub did NOT work the first 3-4 days of our stay (there is also no light in the hot tub). Even though I contacted management about it, it still took till the Wednesday evening (we were due to check out Saturday morning) of our stay for it to be resolved. The amount of pet hair on the couches, floors, rugs and steps was disgusting. Not sure if it was even vacuumed. If so, definitely needing to upgrade the vacuum to accommodate a pet friendly home for future guests. Although none of these were emergent issues (besides really wanting to uses our hot tub for our sore Disney feet)it took quite a while for the rental company to respond. Trying to jump ahead and resolve our issues prior to leaving without having to resort to a negative VRBO review. I contacted the rental company three days ago about possibly being compensated for these issues (mostly the hot tub since I PAID a nightly fee to use it. )but alas, no response. Over all the house met our needs of a place to sleep, shower and eat. But comparing to previous stays and other property rentals (within the same community) we were not completely satisfied with our stay at all.
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your feedback on the stay you had in our home. We appreciate all feedback to better accommodate our future guests. We would like to apologize for the excess pet hair in your home and have passed on this issue to our property management company that deals with this home. I am glad that we were able to address the issues you encountered with the pool heating during your stay. As for the delay of the refund, I have confirmed that all refunds have been processed since replying to your review. We are happy that the home met all your needs and hope that the compensation will fully rectify the situation for you. If you wish to stay with us again, we would love to offer you a return guest discount. Thank you again for booking with Sweet Home Vacation, we appreciate your business.
My Family and I Had A GREAT Time With Very Minor Hiccups
After reviewing your post reviews. I was very hesitant about renting this property. But I decided to see for myself..I’m HAPPY to say that,” We’re so happy that we did!”
The House was perfect for my family with minor hiccups. The pool was heated. The pool table in the game room was nice for the men & away enough from the women to hear them (LOL). The air conditioning was very cold. The showers were the perfect temperature.
My only hiccups was the ice machine was broken, the tile to the jacuzzi was a little chipped, and the pool screen was torn.
My suggestions are the televisions. They were VERY small without cable. But with so much to do In Orlando, we didn’t watch them much.
THANK YOU for having us!
We’ll definitely be returning...
Thank you for your valuable feedback. So that we may better improve the experience for our guests in the future. We have since notified our maintenance team about the issue with the ice machine so it would be repaired. We would be happy to welcome you back to our home in the future and would love to offer you a special return guest discount. Thank you for choosing Sweet Home Vacation and it was a pleasure hosting your stay!
It was not a good experience. Big house nice pool everything else sucked
Management sucks. Y rent a house w a hot tub if u have to pay daily to use the hot tub?! It’s a scam. Everything out of date. Small box TVs and a broken stove.
It's unfortunate to hear that you had a less than perfect experience. We have since notified our maintenance team to repair the stove top you have mentioned so it will no longer be an issue. In regards to the hot tub, it is clearly specified on the listing and the follow-up email after booking that the pool heating is extra service that you can add to use pool and hot tub as an option. Again we are sorry for the inconveniences you have had. Please let us know if you are looking to book a future stay, we would love to offer a return guest discount.Thank you again for booking with us. Regards, Sweet Home Vacation
